Fitz stopped in front of a bedroom fit for a princess – huge, canopied bed, crystal chandeliers, and glass walls overlooking the lake. “this is you. If you need anything, my room’s just down the hall.”
Her heart did that weird fluttery thing when their eyes met, and she had to look away to speak clearly. “thanks for your help today. I don’t think I coud’ve gotten through all this without you.”
He cleared his throat. “I don’t deserve your thanks,”
He kicked the ground, “Because – I knew what was going to happen and I didn’t tell you when I ae you come with me. I never realized it woud be hard for you to move here – not until I found you there on the floor. I feel like I ruined your life.”
“Fitz.” She paused to find the right way to explain the crazy emotions spinning through her. “Today was hard. But you were right about what you said yesterday. This is where I belong.”
I'd rather be punished for making the right decision than live with the guilt of making the wrong one the rest of my life.
Sexual Content: There is some crushes and kissing through out the series.
Other: 1. This book cannot be put down until you have finished it. 2. there is a little bit of violence in the series, so I would not recommend this to younger children 3. There is a little crushing and feelings and stuff, so if you are uncomfortable reading this kind of stuff, I suggest you don't start this series.
Other: This is an amazing book, the reader won't be able to put it down without major medical attention. I will say this: if you are a parent and would prefer it if your kids did not read books with girls having crushes on guys you may want to steer clear of this series
Frightening or Intense Scenes: The entire series includes: betrayal, violence, insane people, monsters, criminals, corrupt leaders, and slight romance.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: This series of books are the best things in the entire world, but they contain several love interests and some scary scenes. The characters have many close calls

Sophie foster is a 12 year who is in high school. She's never fit in at school or at home. But that all changes when she meets a smart (and super cute) boy who takes her to a place with people just like her. She quickly makes friends. But even a perfect world has it's faults...
Sophie Foster, a 12-year-old high school senior, is hated by her classmates. She never really belonged or fit in anywhere…until a mysterious boy arrives and shows her that there's a place where she belongs. Suddenly her whole life changes. But just because she belongs doesn't mean that everyone likes her. It also doesn't mean that she's so safe, either…
Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…
But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.
But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.
